In brief: Several, but

There are a # of natural steroids in foods, but they may or may not actually act as a steroid when digested: raw oysters, pine nuts, figs, almonds, asparagus, avocado, bananas, celery.
Eggs, fish and meat have small amts of estrogen and testosterone (both steroid family). Precursor of estrogen (17a estradiol) in hops used to make beer. Soy-phytoestrogens. Black cohosh-none (if it works, ?).
